Crawford’s 2019 Purse Bingo Kicks Off Annual Campaign

Popular annual event raises more than $15,000!

United Way of Crawford County held their 6th Annual Designer Purse Bingo event on Saturday, September 14 at the Crawford County Fairgrounds Youth Building. The sold-out event is a community favorite, and brought more than 300  supporters together to enjoy a night filled with prizes, food, and fun.

Twenty brand new designer handbags, including purses from Kate Spade, Michael Kors, and Coach, were awarded to the Bingo winners.

The event also served as a Stuff the Car collection site, collecting donations of nutritious, child-friendly, non-perishable food provisions for the Bucyrus Backpack Program, serving Bucyrus City Schools; and Ohio Heartland Community Action Commission’s Backpack Program, serving Galion City Schools. The local backpack programs are working to reduce food insecurity in our community.
